5. Holdredge Pinot Noir Russian River Valley Mazie Rose (2011)

« Prev Next » 5 of 22
Previously available for $50.00
This has a stunning nose, high-toned and floral, with spicy, lightly smoky accents to the earthy small berried fruits that offer up a nuanced beet root note. Soft yet structured, there is lovely depth here with a rich front edge followed by nice nuanced spice notes and very pure, defined red berry and black cherry skin fruit that shows off nearly perfect integration. This remains very perfumed on the back end, with a little savory olive wood note on the long finish that features a nice hint of cherry pie. This is flamboyantly wide open and absolutely gorgeous. 94 points

  • 451405annwrite Totally agree about Porter Creek...one of my favorite wineries. Their Carignane is wonderful, too. What about Mounts Winery and Thomas George (who took over the David Bruce property)? Great list.


  • 89065Gregory Dal Piaz Thanks. I'll have to add visits to Mounts and Thomas George to my next visits out there so that i can report back!


  • 451405annwrite I love Copain Winery, too, in Sonoma County for Pinots and Michel Schlumberger. Cheers to your next trip!


  • 541617CarlJBonura I have been to Sonoma many times and have celebrated their Pinot Noir but except for Schug, I have not tasted any of these PNs. Wow, I have missed so many good ones, it seems! I agree with Annwrite that Copain wines are quite good and Thomas George, too. One of my favorite PN wineries is MacPhail. They used to be exclusively PN producers and everything I tasted was outstanding. Another recent PN discovery was from Kokomo Winery. Their 2008 Peter's Vineyard and the Gopher Hill PN are very good representations of the restrained approach to these wines. Salute`!


  • 89065Gregory Dal Piaz MacPhail is great but boy are the wines hard to find over here on the East Coast!


  • 541617CarlJBonura Not in the stores here on the South Coast, either. But I do order directly from time to time.
